Important DUI defense for Louisiana residents

There are many traffic and car violations that an individual could find himself or herself involved in, from speeding to running a red light and anywhere in between. These violations are obviously issues that an individual would like to avoid, but they are not the most serious offenses. Being pulled over for a DUI, however, is a serious criminal offense that can have life-altering ramifications.

There are many reasons that a law enforcement official may pull somebody over, from simple reckless driving such as swerving in the lane or disobeying traffic laws such as failing to yield right of way. If you are pulled over for any reason and a police officer has reasonable cause to suspect that you are intoxicated, the officer may ask you to submit to a field sobriety test, which could include a Breathalyzer test. If you blow a 0.08 or higher, you could find yourself facing DUI charges.

The legal penalties of a DUI conviction are extremely serious, which is why it is highly recommended that those who are accused of DUI offenses seek the aid of an attorney to assist them with their legal defense. There are many different defense options that you could employ if you are accused of DUI, including whether or not the officer had reasonable cause to pull you over in the first place.

The right legal defense could see you acquitted of your charges or have the charges reduced. This could be the difference between having your license suspended and paying excessive fines and being able to continue driving and living your life normally.
